Can't locate object on the form

I have a line called "SideLine".  It's property set such that it can't be seen or selected (Top=0, Left=0, Y1=Y2=0-X1=X2) with no border and possible Visible=False.

I can locate it on the Object Browser and see various property listed for it on the  Object Browser interface.

How can I change some properties of this line to make it visible and/ or selectable?

No you don't. You can select the object from the drop-down box instead of selecting the object with the mouse. Once selected, you can modify the properties even though you can't see it.

Do you mean within the IDE? If so, go to "View" -> "Properties Window" (or press "F4"). You can then select the object from the drop-down list and change the properties back.

If you mean to do such programatically at run-time, something such as the below would work...

Private Sub Form_Load()
    With Line1
        .X1 = 100
        .X2 = 100
        .Y1 = 400
        .Y1 = 400
        .Visible = True
    End With
End Sub

FYI,

The Line control has no events associated with it.

Therefore It cannot be manipulated at "RUN" time using it's oen events (eg. Mouse Down / MouseMove.

Youcan move and change it at "RUN" time but the action has to be initiated through another control.

To do via "Prope rties Window", I need to physically locate it; and because I can't locate it to select, I can't use it.

True, on run-time using some event , I can change it as I whish but it will go back where it was as soon as I go to design view.

Any other suggestions?
